Next year: iPod nano 32 GB?
Samsung, which creates the NAND memory 4 GB chips for the iPod nano, has announced it will be able to produce a 32 GB version next year. This bodes well for a move to flash memory for the entire line of iPods (a 64 GB version could simply make use of two of those...), although pricing would probably make it difficult. This, of course, depends on Samsung's deal with Apple. But I must say: Even a 16 GB version of the iPod nano would probably shift consumers away from harddrive-based players drastically - and the nano's design helps that, anyway.

Question

is flash memory fast enough to use for a video iPod???

Scott
 
That depends on the codec used to compress the video. MPEG-4 and H.264 should be no problem, since there isn't that much data to be loaded from flash to RAM per second.

The device would of course need a processor for decoding the data in time without generating too much heat.
